The Executive Rules Committee has conferred on the matter and has 
determined that the SAQ (Simms' Armoured Quadricycle) has a sufficient 
historical foundation to be allowed to battle alongside other AFVs. 
However, since the SAQ was only armed with a machine gun, any shots 
fired by the SAQ will only count against un-armored vehicles, artillery 
and infantry.

Upon receipt of proper documentation (photos and captions), the SAQ will 
be designated as a Support Vehicle.
